When it comes down to looking at your office fit out options, it’s always important to consider staying in your current location and refurbishing that. It may not be the right choice depending on your needs and requirements, but there can be merit to this kind of office refurbishment.
One of the most significant benefits is simply the cost. Planning and building a new office fit out can obviously be a costly exercise, but refurbishing your existing office can cut many of those costs. There is less to design, less to build, and less effort in ending and starting a new lease.
Beginning an existing office refurbishment still allows you to the opportunity to address existing issues within your previous fit out. It can be an opportunity to utilise unused space to build more offices, or conversely demolish existing walls to open up new space. You are still afforded the opportunity to address the carpet, ceilings, furniture, walls, and doors – to name a few aspects.
There are certainly downsides to beginning an office refurbishment, especially if the working is being completed while your office space is still occupied. While the bulk of noisy construction will generally be completed outside your work hours, there are other factors to consider. The fit out will often be completed in stages, meaning that it could extend the timeline of the project, and may causes some logistical issues that could cause a degree of disruption to your staff – if they are still working from the site.
These are just a few factors to take on board when you are considering refurbishing your office. Any good office fit out company will be able to help you make the right decision, and work with you from start to finish to bring your vision to fruition.
